After being diagnosed with scoliosis, this Mississippi girl had an updated x-ray taken just two weeks later which showed she had progressed more than 11° in that time.
Two weeks later, she arrived at Scoliosis 3DC for a Schroth program and Gensingen brace®. Over the course of her care (now almost two years), her curve pattern has changed and she’s grown significantly. This has necessitated three brace changes (four braces in all). What’s important is that over the course of less than two years this girl’s scoliosis has improved instead of progressed! Her spinal curves now measure 24º and 21º–a successful reversal of an extremely progressive scoliosis! Fortunately, she is now a Risser 3 and actively managing her scoliosis with the right program and brace, so her risk has reduced significantly.
